Let me preface this by saying that while I am not a Star Wars fan, I am by no means anti-Star Wars or anti-George Lucas. Actually, all of the hype surrounding this brand new Star Wars movie, which is a continuation of the movies of the 70's that fans initially fell in love with, is pretty contagious. Even people who aren't Star Wars fans can agree that the big deal about the Star Wars: The Force Awakens makes for an exciting opening weekend. If nothing else, the hype gives us something to talk about, like all the super fans camping out ahead of time in order to get choice seats at the premiere. As much of an annoying fan of pretty much any Marvel or DC movie as I am, I have never even considered setting up a tent outside of the movie theater weeks prior to a release of one of the many movies. Then again, even I can admit that those movies don't hold as much of a candle, or gigantic following, as the Star Wars movies always have.
Distractify found several people who have never seen Star Wars. Yes, we do exist. And no, we haven't been living under several large rocks. We all tend to know the basics, though. You know, how the whole movie has an underlying soap opera feel to it. You don't have a storyline about unknown parentage and unknown siblings who accidentally kind of dig each other unless you're writing from a soap opera point of view. Which I can totally get behind, because, drama. What sets non-Star Wars fans like me apart from other non-fans though, is that I like to think I'm pretty well-versed in the different characters' names. As in, I know that R2D2 is not, in fact, called PS3, as suggested in the video. Or that Darth Maul, despite his clownish face, is not instead named Darth Juggalo (although we should probably look into changing it to that).
Here's what happens when people who haven't seen Star Wars try to guess the deal with various characters:
